Heather Ross Participates in Panel on Navigating Workplace Tensions in These Tumultuous Times

Sheehey director Heather Ross recently joined two other local employment attorneys to discuss challenges for employers in maintaining a safe workplace amid mounting employee tensions arising from COVID-19 fatigue and the upcoming political election.  Sponsored by the Lake Champlain Chamber, the panel discussed topics such as OSHA requirements, what constitutes protected speech in the workplace, anti-discrimination laws, and employers’ responsibilities under the National Labor Relations Act, in reflecting on how employers can work with employees to ensure a safe and positive workplace.

The presentation is available to re-watch at this link. The panel will regroup every few months to discuss various employment related topics as requested by employers.
